Yoga Is My Life

Tonight, I have to go to yoga.

Now, when most people say that, they really mean:

  • That they should go to yoga -- as in I haven't been to yoga in awhile.
  • That I cannot do what you want me to do because I don't want to do what you want me to do, thus I have to go to yoga.
  • That they are meeting a friend at yoga, so that is why they have to go because their friend will kill them if they don't show up at yoga.
  • That they paid for that yoga class already and dammit they have to go to yoga.

None of these are why I have to go to yoga.

I'm going because one of my friends organized a yoga class at We Yogis to benefit the Back-to-School Drive at Community Partners of Dallas.

NOTE:  The friend who did this wonderful thing is Lilly Neubauer and she is a fantastic person and blogger -- her blog is and it is wonderful.  And I must say that she has the cutest daughter in town!  This is Lilly:

Isn't she adorable?

I'm no good at yoga.  I actually "practiced" (and I use the term so loosely that I dropped that term like a hot rock and it has rolled on down the hill to Houston) yoga for a few months about 5 years ago.  While I could do a beginners class at the time, I think the 5 years that have passed may have closed the kennel door on my downward dog.

But, I'm headed to yoga tonight.
